TWO NAILS: PLEASURE AND PAIN For the past year since our studio moved locations, I have been meticulously staring at these two nails at eye level in front of me at Velo SF while on the trainer. Since we do about 90% of my cycling training in there, it ends up being a

The Vampire Den: Crashes that Bite

October 7th, 2012|

Last update I wrote I was ‘high-fiving angels’ coming off a fun and rewarding Vineman weekend….thrilled to report that while it may be for different reasons, I’m still slapping fives with those angels as I feel lucky to be alive and able to race again. A couple weeks after Vineman, we were in

We had a blast in Cambridge, Maryland at the fantastic Eagleman 70.3 race! I pretty much ate my way through Dorchester county like a hungry hungry hippo especially in the crab cake department as there surely is nothing better than a Maryland Crab Cake—tasty all around.

As ever, the detailed pictures and videos posted here seem to be the window to the fantastic month of May that we had and as I organize them for this blog, I can’t even find enough words to express my gratitude for it all. May especially has always been such a fun month for my family and friends—sprinkled with our wedding anniversary, many birthdays, an Ironman and ample festivities to celebrate!
